My wife and I really enjoyed this course. It was in great shape and wa a lot of fun to play. There some very pretty holes. Unlike the Adobe course it winds around instead of side by side fairways. The course offers a fair test for both male and female mid handicappers like us

First the good news: played without delay with an 8:45 Tee Time for $50. Now the bad: the course wasn't ready to open. The greens were shaggy and that's being kind. Stimp had to be around a 3. Ended up trying to putt with my hybrid, they were so slow! The bunkers hadn't been raked in weeks with old critter tracks and grass growing in them. No rakes in bunkers on back nine. We had to accept cart path only policy. That wasn't advertised on-line. I suppose you would say it was still acceptable; I wouldn't do it again.

Lucky to play this course in shoulder season. Every hole different. Ranks up there in variety with courses twice the price. Only beef was we finished at 315(yay, 3:45 pace) and bar wasnt serving food because it was "slow." If you are a premier facility you should keep the food going until dark even if is slow. Three other groups came in wanting food as well. But as far as a golf course, definitely a winner. Way better than Adobe

The course allows fivesomes, which is all you need to know. If you want to wait on every shot, then give it a try. The 5th hole is a par 3 where you can't see the green. There were no marshalls to speed up play. Driving range and putting greens were closed. You had to park on a street. I won't ever play here again. Too many better options in Phoenix

Half the greens were in bad condition with weed infested and blotchy growth as a result the golf ball did not roll true. The fairways have a lot of brown areas. They just over seeded and have closed the driving range and practice green. Was very disappointed with the condition of the course and paid a premium price.

This is probably my favorite course to play in Phoenix. I was going back and forth between "Fairly Easy" and "Moderate" - it is definitely not the hardest course but there are some tricky holes. I like that you don't need to pull out the driver every hole - some shorter par 4s require some more strategic club selection off the tee. All in all, lots of fun and it's always in good shape. Occasionally it gets a bit busy but usually it's not too bad.

After a nice front nine, you play a challenging back nine. Greens were slow, fairways a little patchy, but overall a great experience and a fun tract.

The Pros:

* This is a Resort course. The staff takes this seriously and was very helpful and pleasant. The cart guys were great immediately offering to help load your bag onto the cart and clean the clubs after the round. The course has Ice and towels and a little ice chest on the carts.

* The GPS on the carts were fairly accurate to the pin. The GPS gave an overview of the hole and a touch screen to tell you distances to doglegs and obstacles. The carts had pep and ran smooth.

* The beverage cart made several appearances during the round.

The Cons:

* The pace of play was ridiculous. We waited every hole from 4th on. After the 6th the back up got even worse. There were a couple groups waiting. On the 13th there was 3 groups on the tees waiting.

* The fairways had several burnt or dead areas. In some areas the fairways were fairly thin. I realize it is summer in AZ, but other courses are not this bad. The greens on the front 9 appear to still be healing from aeration. They were sandy and quick. The back 9 greens were much slower and fuzzy.

I can only give this course 2 stars which the staff and the GPS on the carts pulled up from the 1 star I would have given. Very disappointed overall. I will not be back.
